Blackhawks Pound Sharks 5-1CHICAGO (AP) - Patrick Sharp scored two goals, including one on a third-period penalty shot, and Kris Versteeg had a goal and an assist to lead the Chicago Blackhawks to a 5-1 win over the San Jose Sharks on Sunday night.
Jonathan Toews and rookie Brandon Pirri also scored for the Blackhawks, who rebounded with a tidy defensive effort following a 7-2 loss in Nashville on Saturday, their most lopsided this season.
Joe Pavelski connected for San Jose in a matchup of two of the Western Conference's top teams.
Versteeg scored his first goal with the Blackhawks since being reacquired in trade from Florida on Thursday. He was a member of Chicago's 2010 Stanley Cup-winning team.
